Urgent Update – KEY WORKER STATUS & CHILDCARE

Dear Colleague

I would like to thank all those members who are working as emergency responders providing care to the most vulnerable in our communities in these challenging times and those working from home.

Please find up-to-date information from this Scottish Government on “Keyworker Status” and Childcare link:

Remember if you are “Self Isolating”, “Social Distancing” or following government advice to stay at home (where there is no service need) – this is playing a significant role in preventing/limiting the spread of the virus. Please esnure you are following all the hygiene advice. https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus

The branch office is now closed, however we will continue to deal with members enquiries by telephone and email.

As part of the emergency response the branch has sought suitable transport with load capacity to assist where necessary – this will be organised and operated by your local representatives.

Please stay safe, fit and healthy during these challenging times.

Thanks
Mark Ferguson
Branch Secretary
